IMT cellular networks - Harmonised Standard for access to radio spectrum - Part 18: E-UTRA, UTRA and GSM/EDGE Multi-Standard Radio (MSR) Base Station (BS)

The present document applies to the following equipment types:
• Multi-Standard Radio capable Base stations (E-UTRA, UTRA, GSM/EDGE, NB-IoT).
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in all or any part of the frequency bands given in table 1-1.      NOTE 1: For BS capable of multi-band operation, the supported operating bands may belong to different Band
Categories.
The present document covers conducted requirements for multi-RAT capable E-UTRA, UTRA and GSM/EDGE MSR
Base Stations for 3GPP™ Release 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. This includes the requirements for E UTRA Base Station
operating bands and E-UTRA CA operating bands from 3GPP Release 14.
NOTE 2: The relationship between the present document and essential requirements of article 3.2 of
Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1] is given in annex A.

Celična omrežja IMT - Harmonizirani standard za dostop do radijskega spektra - 18. del: Večstandardna (E-UTRA, UTRA in GSM/EDGE) radijska bazna postaja

Ta dokument se uporablja za opremo naslednjih vrst:
• bazne postaje, ki podpirajo Multi-Standard Radio (E-UTRA, UTRA, GSM/EDGE, NB-IoT).
Radijska oprema teh vrst lahko deluje v vseh delih frekvenčnih pasov iz preglednice 1-1.      
OPOMBA 1: Pri baznih postajah, ki lahko delujejo v več pasovih, lahko podprti operativni pasovi spadajo v različne
kategorije pasov. Ta dokument zajema zahteve za izvedene bazne postaje E-UTRA, UTRA in GSM/EDGE MSR z multi tehnologijo radijskega dostopa za izdaje 9, 10, 11, 12 in 13 standarda 3GPP™. To vključuje zahteve za pasove bazne postaje E-UTRA in pasove bazne postaje E-UTRA CA iz izdaje 14 standarda 3GPP.
OPOMBA 2: Razmerje med tem dokumentom in bistvenimi zahtevami člena 3.2 Direktive 2014/53/EU [i.1] je podano v dodatku A.
